    Scientists, land managers and policy makers discussed whether riparian (stream side) forest management and policy for state, federal and private lands in western Washington are consistent with current science. Answers were mixed: some aspects of riparian policy and management have a strong basis in current science, while other aspects may not. Participants agreed that the same body of science, originally synthesized by the Forest Ecosystem Management Team (FEMAT) report in 1993, underlies most current federal, state and private land policy and management of riparian areas.
